Children with medical conditions

We ask parents to inform us of any medical condition their child has, even if it is not likely to affect them in school or would not require medication in school.

Should your child require any form of first aid, an accident form will be completed, and a copy sent home with your child.  In the case of head injuries, parents will be contacted by telephone.



Norovirus, also known as the winter vomiting bug, is the most common stomach bug in the UK.  Children must stay at home for 48 hours from the last episode of sickness or diahrroea.


Protecting your child against flu

NHS staff provide Nasal Flu vaccinations to children attending the school.  Permission will be requested at the time.


Head lice remain a common part of primary school life. School staff do not check children’s hair.  Because children spend so much time both playing and learning together, it is all too easy for head lice to spread. Anyone can get them and, contrary to popular belief, catching head lice has nothing to do with personal hygiene.

Parents are advised to check each child’s hair weekly and not wait for there to be symptoms. This is by far the best way to prevent head lice.


Birthday treats

It is the School’s policy not to allow cakes or sweets to be shared when it is a child’s birthday. As a school committed to promoting healthy choices and lifestyles, we actively encourage healthier eating and are also committed to remaining particularly vigilant to protect children either with specific dietary allergies or those whose beliefs call for them to follow particular dietary regimes. Please do adhere to this policy, as we want to avoid children and their parents being disappointed or any treats being wasted.
